Blog Details

We are a 2 star hotel with rooms situated throughout 4 floors. The hotel has no lift due to the grade 2 listed building status meaning we can't make alterations to install one. We will of course, help with luggage though.

Our food is traditional and cooked using fresh produce of fish, meats, vegetables & dairy sourced from Scilly & Cornwall where possible. Our style is not nouvelle cuisine or a fancy Michelin Star type restaurant.

Our experienced staff offer excellent & attentive service, far beyond the normal expectations for a 2 star rated hotel

Our swimming pool is 8 metres x 4 metres and so neither small, or Olympic size! An unusual extra facility compared to even many other hotels. Its size is governed by available space, and is covered in and heated.

Our rooms are comfortable & furnished to the same standard. All are en suite with either bath, shower or both, and some are compact, hence the special offer lower tariff for these.

The hotel is situated in the centre of Hugh Town, at the quieter side and is ideally positioned for easy access to the harbour for inter island boats to the inhabited islands of Tresco, Bryher, St Agnes & St Martins.

I try to post regular photographs of the islands, and you can see more of the hotel in the photo galleries on the right hand side of the page.

Guest Review Extracted From TripAdvisor

“Thoroughly deserves it's No.1 TripAdvisor rating”

Reviewed 3 April 2012

I've just got back from another great weekend at the Bell Rock. As usual, everything was spot on - friendly people that run it who genuinely make you feel at home, a nice comfortable room and a good cooked breakfast to set you up for the day. I wouldn't really consider staying anywhere else on St Mary's now. Considering some of the price hikes that other St Mary's hotels have introduced this season, the Bell Rock looks a better deal each year. The No. 1 rating that the Bell Rock has on TripAdvisor is fully justified - I just wish I could have stayed longer.
